FLINT, Mich. (AP) - A U.S. House committee chairman leading hearings on the Flint water crisis sparked by lead contamination has visited the city.
Republican Rep. Jason Chaffetz, chairman of the oversight panel, met with Flint Mayor Karen Weaver Saturday at the Flint water plant. He also attended a U.S. Environmental Protection Agency open house.
Chaffetz says the "system totally failed and people need to be held accountable."
Weaver says she's pleased by his visit and urges passage of a federal aid package for Flint.
